2001 corolla insturment panel lights

Half of my instrument panel will not light up in my 2001 Corolla. Could it be a fuse? If not, how do I get to the bulb?

    I really don't want to have to pull the cluster but I also need to be able to see how fast I'm driving at night.

  • sdl64 Jan 10, 2009

    No, but thanks. I'll have to take it to the garage for that. I don't have anywhere to do anything that involved. I was hoping it may be an easy fix like a fuse that I could handle myself. Thanks again for the info!

    Lower left half of panel is dark, including the temperature control dial. Right side is okay. Guessing it is a bulb and not a fuse.

    You have to pull the cluster. There is no way to access the bulbs with the cluster fitted to the dashboard.

  • Toyota Ed May 11, 2010

    If half of the instrument cluster is working, the fuse is good. You need to pull the instrument cluster out of the dash, to get to the bulbs. Do you want info to remove the cluster? It involves a complete removal of it to access the bulbs.

I had the same problem in my 2001 Corolla. Removing the cluster was not a problem. Remove the two screws securing the 'bezel' around the cluster. You may need to use a small screwdriver then to gently pry the bezel out from the top and remove. Then remove three screws securing the instrument cluster and pull it out. Because newer cars have all electronic guages, there is no speedometer cable to make it difficult. Just pull it out, turn it over and twist the green bulb holders to get to the bulbs.

I had the same problem on my car. Someone quoted $750.00 what cost me less than $6.00 to repair! Bought some standard 154 or 164 long life bulbs at AutoZone. Taking the instrument panel apart was easy but needed to be careful...used a flat head screwdriver to gently pry the dash apart.

BIG POINT - the reason these bulbs burned out was because of a loose connection, so when putting in the new bulbs, bend the metal holders in slightly.

Most likely yes. most dash components just snap togethernow. be gentle. call the dealer for the bulbs. unlikely they are all burned out. If none work look for a bad fuse and check the head light switch.

Where is the fuse box on a 2003 Toyota Corolla?


Hello, welcome to FixYa.

The fusebox for an 03 Corolla is on the driver's side of the dash, above the plastic panel that is above your knees. You can see it by looking up and to the left, under the instrument pane, with a flashlight. It is a rather large white or cream-coloured box (depending on where the car was produced). An easier way to get to the fuses would be to remove the plastic trim panel that is directly under the bottom of the instrument panel.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance today.

Most likely a fuse is bad, get out your owners manual and see which one powers the lights. Buy a good test light and it will help you the rest of your mechanic career. Then you can test the fuses without pulling them out to look at them, and test them electrically. first to confirm they are indeed getting power and then that they are good.

Replacment of a dash light. Toyota Corolla 1998


There is a plastic garnish surrounding the instrument cluster held in by 2 philips head screws. remove the screws and gently pry the garnish from top first then sides then it should pull out.

Then remove the 3 screws holding the cluster in place (2 bottom 1 top). Once that is done gently flip the cluster bottom up and pull out some to expose the wiring harness. Remove the 3 connectors from the back and then the cluster will pull out.

There are 3 bulbs that control the overall lighting of the cluster. They are spaced about every third across the rear of the cluster. They are the larger Green knobs. Remove the 3 large green knobs and replace the bulbs with the appropriate size. You can call your local parts store to find out the size.

Its a 5 minute job and does not require the entire removal of the dash board.

Instrument cluster lights out


check fuses, if no fuses then small bulbs in the display may be out. If bubls are non replaceable then insturment cluster must be swapped out, that's expensive, so get to the fuses first folks.
